    Cannot remove install icons from iPad 2 upgraded to iOS 6

    While installing some apps into my iPad 2 updated to iOS 6, they get frozen with a blue installation bar. Even so, the apps get installed into my iPad after sometime and I can see icons on the home screen. But, the install icons having blue bars still remains on the screen. I just hold down each icon until it wiggles to delete them. But, they didn’t display any X mark after that. How can I get rid of these icons?

    Force quit all the opened apps and then reset your iPad using Sleep/Wake and Home buttons. To perform the first step, bring up the taskbar by double pressing the ‘Home’ button. The icons of all currently opened apps will be displayed on the taskbar. Tap and hold any of these icons until all the icons starts to jiggle on the screen. You can then force quit all apps by tapping the minus sign over each icon. The first step required for a reset is to press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together for about 10-15 seconds. Ignore the red slider become visible on the screen during this time period and take hold of those buttons until an Apple Logo appears on the screen.
